Experienced guys… I got into a bit of a deadlift battle with a younger maori fella last week - my ego made me try to lift the same weight as him (silly old fool I am).
I felt a twinge in my side which, as they do, became worse over the next few days to the point where I could hardly walk or sit without pain.
The pain is in my “love handle” area at the side say, around navel level, and about 5" or so to the left of my spine, feels like my hip bone region…
I’ve done this before, so here are my questions;
what muscle / ligament injury might this be?
and it takes a good 2 to 3 weeks to fully recover, would anyone know what I’m doing wrong, in terms of form, to cause an injury in this area?
Has anyone else had this “twinge” which worsens
I’m pleased it’s not my lower back or spine in pain, but obviously I’m doing something wrong and it’s damaging this “hip” region somehow. I focus on keeping the back straight, head in line, arse back so I can feel the pull in my hammy’s and weight on my heels…
Thanks for any insights.
